Easy Summer Salsa Recipe

Jamie here, my husband’s favorite words that come out of my mouth are probably “I think I’ll make Salsa today!”  His face lights up, as do the boys’, with unadulterated joy.  It’s an understatement to say that my whole family loves Mexican food – so when I make my salsa recipe, I usually do a triple batch.  That way I can use it over the next few days in any other Mexican recipes I wind up cooking.  Plus – it tastes even BETTER the second day…

Baked Cheese Sticks

Cheese Sticks Final 5   Cheese sticks are so yummy, but since they are deep fried we usually avoid them. This recipe for a healthier version of baked cheese sticks will even please the pickiest kids. With the yummy crunch on the outside and hot melted cheese on the inside it’s a perfect afternoon snack or appetizer. Plus, they are easy to make! Give it a try and see how much you’ll love them! For more healthy recipes click here.   Ingredients Ingredients:

  • 12 sticks of string cheese in your choice of cheese – I used mozzarella
  • 2 tbsp of flour
  • 5 tbsp of bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese
  • a tad of olive oil, or cooking spray

In Process 1 Cut the cheese sticks in half, making 24 slices, then freeze the slices in the freezer until completely frozen. In Process 2 Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a separate bowl to combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. To bread the cheese sticks: First dip the frozen cheese stick into the flour, then into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture. In Process 3 Once all of the cheese sticks are coated, place them on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil coated with a few drops of olive oil or sprayed with cooking spray (this helps keep them from sticking). Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 4 minutes, or until crisp. Watch them closely so they don’t melt completely! Serve with marinara sauce and enjoy!

As I was meal planning this week I remembered this recipe video that I saw on Facebook for Mexican Quinoa however, my husband does not enjoy vegetarian meals so I knew he’d be less than happy if I made it for dinner.

An added bonus, as a one pot meal it was so easy to make and clean up was a snap! [Read more...]
